Wayside Waifs and other animal shelters are full of kittens right now. I stopped in to visit on Friday this past week.
I have to say I have never seen so many cute, energetic and pretty kittens all in one place before.
It was a kittenpalooza there--and it's not just Wayside Waifs. All the shelters in the metro are reporting in with lots of kittens.
Here is the smallest "cone of shame" I have ever seen...probably weighed more then this little girl.
They are better in pairs really--if you have no pets now, and are considering adopting young ones, consider two...
Wayside also have adorable puppies and grown cat and dogs. Most of the dogs are still very young--this shepherd mix is only two.
Animal rescues and shelters in our area have been helping out in the tornado zones by collecting animals that had been in the shelters and rescues in those areas--particularly Joplin, MO--and bringing them up here to KC for possible adoption. This frees up space in the shelters there for animals that are found in the process of rescue, recovery and clean up. In that way, reuniting owners with their beloved pets is more possible. Also supplies are being given out to pet owners in the damaged areas to help them feed and keep their animals healthy.
Wayside Waifs is at 3901 Martha Truman Road in south KC. On the web at www.waysidewaifs.org. Phone 816-761-8151.
